  • Abortion kills a potential human being. +4
  • Yes. There's a beating heart.
  • Of course. Isn't that what is meant to do?
  • abortion kills human beings!
  • Well, it's not a giraffe, is it? And viability outside the womb is a poor indicator. An astronaut in space won't live long without his spacesuit/ship. For nine months, the mother provides full life support for a real live human being. One with seperate and individual DNA different from either parent's.
  • Welcome to planet Earth! What planet are you from? In Earth, us humans reproduce. Some female humans decide to get a procedure called abortion and what it does is that it kills a human being inside the female human. Are there abortions in your planet?
  • I would say that abortion, at the stages of development at which I consider it appropriate, does not kill any species at all. It removes a growth from a woman which, if it were left in place, would in the fullness of time become a human being. But just having the capacity to become something does not make it something. An acorn is not an oak tree.
  • The species killed here is of the cockroach species. This is the only known way to kill the little demons. P.S: I am kidding. human + human = human...therefore abortions kill humans.
  • No. It's a group of cells.
  • Define human being.
  • Yes it kills a human being. What do you think the fetus is, a cat? Im not going further than that because a key disagrement point amongst the abortion lovers and those who think its murder, is wheter or not the fetus is considered human. Suffice it to say that i think it is human.
  • We could re-frame the question too. Do women have the right to choose how they want to spend the next 20 years of their life? How about how much wear and tear their bodies absorb? Are women simply baby factories or are they humans too?
  • Every animal belongs to some species. If it's not human, what exactly is it? We all know it's human. People don't want to admit it and say it's a potential human because they know that abortion kills a human being and it doesn't sound so good.
  • People can rationalize killing an unborn child by pretending that it's not really a human being "yet." I suppose it appeases their conscience.
  • No, it kills a being that would have formed into a human the way an egg will eventually become a chicken or a seed would become a tree.
  • Yes, they are human beings. Little ones.
  • Yes, it does kill a Human, but it only kills a human being if it occurs in the later part of pregnancy depending on what you mean by "being". Some would say that you were not a "being" or "person" within the womb until your brain developed to a cerain extent and was capable of certain basic mental functions. When you cut yourself and wipe away the blood, you are destroying human life as well, but not a person.
  • It kill's a child of your own...
  • In my opinion it kills a collection of Human cells...... not dissimilar to removing a tumour.
  • It kills a potential human being that never asked to be made so yes
  • It's not a question of species but rather of killing. To kill something, it has to be alive. So at what point does a zygote become a living creature. Nice try at forcing your predetermined conclusion.
  • Others will argue different, but there is no denying ... what looks to me within these links below ... what is the begining of a precious human life >>> <*Please note > The links below contain graphic images of murdered people, proceed only if you are willing and prepared to see death. . http://www.idude.org/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/abortion2.jpg . http://images.google.com.au/images?hl=en&q=aborted%20fetus&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi
  • you kill the fetes because you can not give it a desired life as a human being meaning if you can't suport i baby/child you make it so you dont have one, ppl should be more careful to not get pregnent but if this is what needs to get done, then let it be done... would rather have a dead fetes or a poor starving child/baby that dies miserably or ends up some wanna be gangster shootin up some mall?
  • No, it does not. The fetus is human, in the same way that my little finger is a human finger, my fingernails are human fingernails, etc.
  • loaded question Dude, of course it's human. I feel abortion at an early stage is fine, though i do think the later stage is not ok unless there are good medical reasond regarding either the mother or fetus. I believe terminations should not be carried out after 12 weeks or so, most women should know by then they are pregnant and should know what they want to do.
  • I supose it would... Unless the abortion was faked for profit, in which case it will kill the girl inside if she is fortunate enough to grow a conscience.
  • I personally think it kills a human being. Some ppl call the baby a parasite and i think thats wrong!
  • I don't think questions like this should be allowed to be asked anymore. Do you really need to ask us to know whether or not your killing a human? I mean come on. Seriously..dude. I'm not even going to amuse you with an answer.
  • If abortion is done in an early stage, it removes and stops human cells which could eventually grow into a human being. The cells do not yet form a human. If it would be 'born', it would be dead within an instance. It's not a child, it's cells with the potential to become a child. Just as an acorn is not an oak tree. So no, an abortion does not kill a human being, even though the material is human.
  • Yes. Killing a fetus is a homicide. It wouldn't be a homicide if a fetus wasn't a human being.
